Pre and Post Visit Curriculum Materials based on our new temporary exhibit,
Inside the White House: A Special Exhibit

The world-famous White House Exhibit, a 20 foot wide by 60 foot long 1-inch-to-1-foot scale of the White House, will be on display for one year, beginning March 15, 2010. Taking over 600,000 hours of labor to create, the miniature is an amazing replica, showing visitors an intimate look into the White House - from the Lincoln bedroom to the Oval Office to tiny, working televisions to hand-carved chairs, tables and crystal chandeliers.
